Relaying a report from fellow hawkwatcher Dick Haas of Agawam, Mass.:

Dick visited Hilltop Farm in Suffield this afternoon after the rain stopped.  Between 2:45 and 4:45, he counted 521 Broad-winged Hawks and 5 Ospreys, all migrating.  The Broad-wing tally is a conservative figure. They flew high, kettling only briefly overhead before moving swiftly north.  He also reported a Common Loon and a Peregrine Falcon (which was probably a local bird).
